Book
An eighteenth-century prince devotes his entire wealth and the energy of his subjects to the creation of Rreinnstadt, a fantastic city that exists only on paper and in the minds of its creators. Among Rreinnstadt's fictional inhabitants is Pfitz, a count's loyal servant who mysteriously disappears one night from a tavern. Andrew Crumey's exploration of the rich territory between reality and fantasy reveals a genuine affection for character and the terrain of the human heart.

Praise for Pfitz

"Crumey has written a fantastic novel about a fantasy. . . . Real and unreal merge, interact, and form a tale that is part quirky amusement and part sly satire."--The Atlantic Monthly

"Crumey sends imagination and reason on a collision course. . . . Like a Viennese music box, Crumey's meditations on language and meaning are tightly wound machines."--Alyssa Katz, Newsday

"There is enchanting, provocative magic afoot in every layer of Crumey's world."--Michael Upchurch, The Seattle Times
